About the owner: We are from the East Lansing area. This has been our family cottage for 50 years. As the 5 sons travel farther away, we want to let others enjoy the wonderful experiences we had growing up at this lake.
Why the Owner Chose Elk Rapids, MI, USA:
The warm lake and family access first drew our parents here. Over the years the lake has proven to be a wonderful place for creating family memories. The lake and area are beautiful, and invites you back year after year.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
It was the safe, friendly, family atmosphere that drew us to Birch Lake. The clean, warm water and shallow sandy bottom makes the lake ideal for families and children. Evening campfires, beautiful sunsets, playing splash football and throwing a Frisbee in the shallows, learning to fish and water ski. These are just some of the memories you'll take home, as we did.
